About KC

I have a Ph.D. in biochemistry from The University of Chicago. My previous research work was in biochemistry, structural biochemistry, and analytical chemistry, so I also have a thorough knowledge of a variety of chemistry topics. Due to this, I can offer tutoring services in all areas of chemistry, including general, organic, analytical, electrochemistry, and biochemistry. I will gladly assist undergraduate and high school students in the world of chemistry to help improve grades or prepare for the AP Chemistry examination.

My previous instructional experiences include the tutoring of high school students in general and AP chemistry, tutoring undergraduate and professional students in biochemistry and organic chemistry, and helping undergraduate students initiate their research projects in chemistry and biochemistry laboratories. My main goals are to help students grasp the basic theories covered in class, improve study techniques to prepare for exams, and to increase confidence in problem solving by introducing strategies on how to understand and approach questions. If you have any questions about topics I can cover or my availability, please feel free to contact me, and I will assess whether or not I can assist you in your endeavors in the world of science.

CANCELLATION FEE:
If you must cancel a lesson, please let me know 24 hours or more in advance of the lesson start time. Notification may be by Wyzant message, text, or call--please make sure I have responded to your cancellation notice. Appointments cancelled within 24 hours of the lesson start time will be charged the full fee as if the lesson has occurred. No show + no notice will be assessed the full lesson charge + a $10 extra fee. If my schedule permits, the lesson can be rescheduled within the same week (week ending on Friday) without penalty. Regular students (students confirmed for 8+ sessions within a 4 month period) will receive one grace cancellation per term.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biochemistry

I have helped teach an introductory biochemistry topics course for undergraduate students. My biochemistry course work includes biochemistry I and II, undergraduate and graduate biophysics, graduate biochemistry, and also laboratory courses.

Chemistry

I can cover a wide variety of the general chemistry course topics covered in typical high school and undergraduate courses. These include nomenclature, terminology, thermodynamics, acid-base reactions, and kinetics. Please feel free to contact me with questions if you would like more information on my background or approach to certain topics or problem types.

Organic Chemistry

Successful organic chemistry mastery starts with memorizing the details of each synthesis step and solving problems by applying this knowledge to complete a detailed synthesis procedure. I can assist in learning either or both of these requirements for undergraduate and professional Organic Chemistry I and II courses.

As a chemistry student, I took Organic Chemistry I & II in addition to their corresponding laboratory courses. I also opted to sit for the American Chemical Society examination, on which I received high marks. I also took an international organic chemistry course in Hong Kong, which covered more advanced syntheses. My instructional experience with this topic has mostly been assisting students prepare for their medical school examinations, but I am highly interested in helping other students in their examinations or assignments for organic chemistry courses.

Please feel free to contact me if you're stuck with a problem, would like extra help throughout a course, or would like a quick review for an exam!
